The 2023 GMC Sierra HD has been caught testing, wearing mild camo on the front and rear end. According to many reports, the new truck is about to receive a refresh styling with a variety of changes and updates. Moreover, thanks to first spy shots, we have some early look at the heavy-duty pickup’s revised exterior. What’s more, the GMC Sierra HD will have a refreshed body and a revised cabin as well. So, expect a plethora of upgrades, which should result in a more modern cabin.
Like before, we expect the same 6.6-liter gas-powered V8 to power the standard model. However, this engine is upgradable, and you can get a 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel V8, which has a significantly higher torque rating.

The spy shots of the refreshed 2023 GMC Sierra HD reveals some changes. First of all, we noticed a completely new LED headlight unit and lighting signature, which are visible through small holes in the camouflage mesh covering. Interestingly, rather than the vertically stacked three-light cluster, the manufacturer revised headlights higher in the front fascia.
We have also noticed some small modifications on the front, including more massive grille. On the back, this truck features the same taillights and tailgate.

Stepping in, you’ll first notice more premium materials, especially in the higher trims. Like before, this truck has to offer plenty of roomy in the front seats, no matter which cab you choose.
However, if you’re looking to place some passengers comfortably, the best choice is getting a Crew Cab model. Some standard features on the Sierra HD are air conditioning, a rubberized vinyl floor, a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a backup camera, and Bluetooth connectivity.
